Here is a list of passengers up to 1924 that traveled through New York with your surname...

Have a look and see if anything rings a bell with you and then let us know if you are interested in a particular person or family and we can try to help. Otherwise, its almost impossible to do a general search on the surname..we'd be here for years trying to find that kind of information for you. :)

About 1880, BALLESTRI Cosma Damiano would have from Rome, with Prince BONCOMPAGNI to settle in Vignola (province of Modena). It made party of its guard. Since my ancestors settled in this city. I know that BALLESTRI live NY and perhaps CHICAGO. They from Italy. Do they make party of my family ?
Thanks for help.

Hello Pascal,

Not the same family. My family came from Trabia, Sicily. Sorry!
